Sea ViewsPets AllowedOpen FireCot & Highchair

Teach Nancy is a large holiday cottage with four bedrooms and a capacity to sleep up to fourteen. It is recently built, and the grounds have just been landscaped. There are two upstairs bedrooms, each with an en-suite, two downstairs bedrooms, a playroom that can serve as an extra bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, separate dining room, a lounge with an open fireplace, utility room, hallway and a spacious landing area.

The kitchen is fully fitted with all the usual modern appliances, and bed linen, towels, central heating and electricity are all included.

The cottage lies on an elevated section of a low hill, and enjoys superb views overlooking an inlet known as Ballyness Bay, Finlays Bar (not a pub), and the Dooey Peninsula, - the landward side of the fabulous Magheroarty Beach. It is situated about 1.5km north west of the village of Gortahork, on a side road off the main coastal R257 road just after it branches off the main N56, where it turns south, towards Gweedore.

The Village

Gortahork (Gort a Choirce) lies in the north west of county Donegal, and the name comes from the Irish for  the field of the oats. It lies in the Irish speaking Gaeltacht, and with Falcarragh, forms part of the district known as Cloughaneely. Although off the beaten track, it is lively at night, with good restaurants, a world famous traditional pub - Teach Billie, a Pizza-Piano Wine Bar and Amharclann Uí Shearcaigh Theatre O Searcaigh.

Gortahork has been home to the Guth Gafa Documentary Film Festival since 2006. The festival runs in May, and in its first year screened 30 films from 15 different countries. There are two supermarkets, a post office, a florist and a craft shop. Two hotels, - Óstán an Bear Mór with a bar and gourmet restaurant, and Óstán Loch Altan, a newly refurbished 40-bedroom hotel.

Donegal-Carrickfinn Airport is just ten miles away.

If looking at breathtaking scenery, chatting with local people about bygone years, walking on miles and miles of golden beaches, and passing nights of music and craic in local pubs is for you, then Gortahork is your natural choice.

Activities

Being so close to the coast, one can not fail to mention that Magheroarty Beach is one of Irelands prime kite and windsurfing locations.
Anglers will have a great choice of many lakes and rivers in the area, - and there are plentiful supplies of fish in the surrounding sea.
